    Awesome work as usual, Glen. That scale material is eye catching.

    Awesome! I'd be curious to see the 'before' pics. It's amazing with some Bokers as a lot come with the generic black celluloid scales. You really brought out the inner beauty here

    No scales came with this, so I had to just wing it but I have done that a time or two the steel wasn't too bad just a few stains except at the pivot which had the typical black rings..

    Sorry I didn't snap before pics I still get excited when I start these, and forget better than half the time

    I can see why that colour would be a personal fave G. So much going on in those scales. A stunna fo sho.

    Beautiful. Great eye to find that perfect section of the material to display so much vitality. Incredible when you consider the confined space of the scales. I know you've mentioned before you often use one piece of acrylic, keeping a thin cut. I still need to say it though - I still love how you match the sides so inboard of scales, match outside pattern

    You should do all of your work in a photo studio, then MAYBE you wouldn't forget :-P

    Very beautiful Glen, your restorations just keep getting more and more gorgeous!

    PS-Where do you get hold of that aquamarine acrylic?
